DESCRIPTION: (from Netflix's press release, June 2015) Narcos chronicles the gripping real-life stories of the drug kingpins of the late 1980s and the corroborative efforts of law enforcement to meet them head on in brutal, bloody conflict. It details the conflicting forces - legal, political, police, military and civilian - that clash in an effort to control the world's most powerful commodity: cocaine. The series re-partners creator and executive producer José Padilha (Elite Squad, RoboCop) with acclaimed Brazilian actor Wagner Moura (Elite Squad, Elysium) as a captivating Pablo Escobar alongside Boyd Holbrook (Gone Girl) and Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) as real-life DEA agents Steve Murphy and Javier Peña. The series also features powerful performances by Colombia's Juan Pablo Raba (El corazón del océano), British theater star Joanna Christie (Once), Mexican sensation Stephanie Sigman (also seen later this year in the next Bond installment, Spectre), Colombian actor Manolo Cardona (Covert Affairs), Brazil's renowned André Mattos (Elite Squad), beloved Puerto Rican actor Luis Guzman (Boogie Nights) and the stunning Ana de la Reguera (Eastbound & Down, Nacho Libre) from Mexico. Eric Newman (Children of Men), the team of Doug Miro and Carlos Bernard (Sorcerer's Apprentice) and Chris Brancato (Hannibal) also serve as executive producers on the series. Narcos is produced by Gaumont Television for Netflix. All ten (10) episodes of Narcos will premiere on Friday, August 28.
